DFT Receives State Award

The New York state Public Service Commission recently recognized Dunkirk and Fredonia Telephone Company, Cassadaga Telephone Corporation and DFT Local Service Corp. for providing excellent telephone service to consumers during 2021.

The commendation was the 33rd consecutive year for Dunkirk & Fredonia Telephone Company and the 29th consecutive year for Cassadaga Telephone Corporation. Additionally, DFT Local Service Corporation was also recognized for the 7th consecutive year of providing the same high-quality level of telephone service provided to consumers during 2021.

Each year, the commission recognizes telephone companies that provide exemplary service to their customers. The criteria includes evaluation of “customer trouble report rates” and the number of consumer complaints received by the Commission. Among its criteria for recognition, the PSC requires that customer trouble report rates must be less than 3.3% per 100 access lines.

In addition, competitive local exchange carriers must be facility-based providers and have provided service quality data for each of the months of 2021.

“We are honored that the Public Service Commission has recognized our continued efforts,” said Mark R. Maytum, President and Chief Operating Officer at DFT Communications. “For over 124 years, DFT Communications has worked to go above and beyond our customer’s expectations.
